For Two Cents, I'll Go With You (book) by Marcia MaxwellIn the spring of 1917, Walter “Pat” Lusk is lonely and bored. Sitting at his desk at Dow Chemical where he earns $12 a week shuffling papers, he dreams of the glory experienced by his grandfather, a Civil War cavalry officer, as World War I rages across Europe. Frustrated, he thinks the closest he’ll ever get to the war is rereading newspaper reports of heroic soldiers in desperate combat until one day his friend Aubrey arrives, grinning like a split in a pumpkin. The United States has declared war on Germany! That very day Pat abandons his job and enlists in the Army, hungering for a real adventure. Assigned to Evacuation Hospital No. 4 as a surgeon’s assistant, will Pat finally attain the glory he seeks as he and his buddies treat desperately wounded soldiers through the war’s darkest days? Will the Armistice bring peace to the boys of Evac 4, or does a time of even greater testing await Pat and his friends? Based on a true story, For Two Cents, I’ll Go With You is a tale of enduring friendship in the face of unimaginable sacrifice.
